Miyako odori

Everywhere in Kyoto has signs for the grand miyako odori, a yearly dance that displays the skills of the geisha. I went this morning and was able to get a nose bleed section seat for a good price. After I was heading out, a woman stopped me on her bike and started asking where I learned Japanese. After a short walk she asked to meet again at 2pm after the dance for tea. She also gave me a special tiket to have tea ceremony with the geishas after the dance.

After the walk I go on the train and heads for fushimiinari since I had a couple hours before the show. This temple is famous for it’s thousands of torii gates.
